About this sound Ropice  (Polish: Ropica , German: Roppitz) is a village in the Czech Republic. It lies in the Frýdek-Místek District of the Moravian-Silesian Region. Ropice has a population of 1,417 (2006), 28.9% of which are Poles.[1] Ropičanka River flows into the Olza River in the village. It lies in the historical region of Cieszyn Silesia.

The village was first mentioned in a written document in 1305 as Ropiza.[2] Owners of Ropica in 15th century, the Sobek family, built a fort in the village. It was rebuilt to a baroque château around 1700 and then to a classicist one in 1810. It remains in that style today, although it dilapidated during the communist era and is now completely devastated.

There is a modern golf course in Ropice.
